Elise Kirkpatrick’s Two Birth Stories

To listen to this episode, and the rest of The Birth Hour archives, join our listener supporter group here!

Today’s birth stories feature Elise sharing her birth center and homebirth experiences. Her first birth at the birth center, although empowering, was not what she was expecting. With her son she carefully planned for and had what she describes as a sacred birth experience. She also shares her experience having a blessingway in lieu of a baby shower. You can read more about that in this post she wrote about the blessingway.

Gypsy mama Elise and her tiny tribe currently call the islands of Hawai’i home, although they are travel junkies most of the year. Elise whole heartedly believes in natural birth, gentle-playful parenting, and living life to the fullest!
